Critically acclaimed actress Thea Barfoed has gone through turmoil which have resulted in a divorce and the loss of custody of her two boys.

Her ex-husband Christian is quickly persuaded by her tough and manipulative but charming personality and she must prove to both herself and him that she is capable of getting her life back on track.
